A Look Back at the Holly Holm Steroid Controversy

The story happened nearly two months ago, but there still going to be people accusing the UFC Women Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm due to one of her sponsors and a weighin photo from UFC 184. 
The sponsor Intel Pharma, has been linked to steroid-laced products that it discontinued in June. However, former champion Ronda Rousey faced similar accusations with Gaspari Nutrition, which sponsored her in from 2012 to 2014. That organization also sold products that also contain steroids. Jeff Notivsky, former federal agent and overseer of the UFC’s anti-PED program said Holm passed five drug tests in the past year.*
As for the infamous crotch shot, nothing can be definitive from having a large clitoris or vagina. Could be from steroid abuse (clitoromegaly is a common symptom) it could be natural, or it could even be a rare intersex condition that are known give women masculine qualities.
The first video by JuggernautFitness TV is the YouTube video that brought up to the concern about steroid use due the crotch shot. Some of the other so-called YouTube fitness experts. I really enjoyed listening to the one by the guy with the Irish accent. Not disrespecting the accent, it’s actually more of a compliment.
